World Habitat Day: Global Impact
Thursday, October 19 at 12:00 am (PT)
T. Van Hook, CEO, Habitat for Humanity Tucson
On World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity joins the United Nations and organizations around the world in raising awareness and in educating and mobilizing individuals and communities to take action on the current global housing crisis. This is a day that is dedicated to helping people build adequate shelter for themselves and their families and an opportunity to engage in global efforts to build a better world – one home at a time. But have you ever wondered how World Habitat Day started and what exactly happens on this day of action? T. will join us to discuss the origins of World Habitat Day and why it’s so important. How big of an event here? In Tucson more than 300 volunteers representing over 35 corporations, faith communities, and organizations will come together to raise the walls on 6 new homes with 6 hardworking Tucson families. T will also share with us the highlights of the event and how her community came together to build a stronger Southern Arizona. This show made possible due to the generous support of Habitat for Humanity Tucson.
